Founded in 1985, Aero Auto Repair has been serving sunny San Diego, California for more than three decades. In that time, shop owners Sharon and Gary Anderberg have seen it all - from the rapidly changing business landscape to demographic shifts in their own customers.

After Meeting with Kukui at an industry event and learning they could control their website content instantly, as well as the benefit of an “all-in-one” CRM management and marketing options, they decided to change webmasters and joined the Kukui family. After the switch, their previous website backlinks were broken and their URL effectively blacklisted by Google. They found themselves in an unfortunate situation and needed to trust their decision to join forces with a marketing company that could help them get back on track. They kept a positive attitude, and worked together with Kukui to not only regain but increase their presence on Google.
